SAP NetWeaver AS - External Interface for Alert Management (BC-XAL)

BC-XAL enables external system management software to read or set the properties and values of monitoring attributes, as well as read or confirm alerts. Through this interface, the Computer Center Management System (CCMS) in SAP NetWeaver supports software vendors who integrate their products with SAP's existing administration tools.

Getting Started

The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) highly recommends that ISVs and partners, who are interested in certifying an integration of their product with SAP solutions, begin with our page Getting Started with Integration and Certification that explains the SAP ICC services and describes the process how to obtain them. This page helps you select the correct integration scenario and contains technical information, streaming media presentations, step-by-step guides, and much more.
